Indigo Girls – Up On The Roof lyrics

When this old world starts a getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space

On the roof it's peaceful as can be
And there the world below don't bother me
Oh no

So when I come home feeling tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet
And get far away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat race noise down in the street

On the roof that's the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Lets go up on the roof

At night the stars they put on a show for free
Yes they do
And darling you can share it all with me

That's what I said I keep on telling you
That right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that's trouble free
And if this old world stars getting you down
There's room enough for two up on the roof

At night the stars they put on a show for free yeah
And darling you can share it all with me

That's what I said I keep on telling you
That right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that's trouble free
If this old world stars getting you down
There's room enough for two up on the roof
Up on the roof oh yeah
Up on the roof
